Zyrtec for rosacea

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec for rosacea

zyrtec

Antibiotics are the mainstay of treatment for acne rosacea; this suggests that bacterial infection is the cause. However, antibiotics do not cure rosacea; the rosacea patient must continue to use oral antibiotics or a topical antibiotic, metronidazole gel (Metrogel), to prevent recurrence. Oral isotretinoin (Accutane) can be used to treat severe acne rosacea and rhinophyma.
Otherwise, I stay away from topical steroids because they just aggravate the rosacea. -- Zyrtec. Right now it's the allergy medicine I respond to. I've just weaned myself off of the Zyrtec D because my doc prescribed a new nasal inhalant spray, which leads us to... -- Astepro nasal spray. I like this because it's a LOCALIZED relief method.
My doctor gave me doxyclycline hyclate 100 mg cap one-twice daily for rosacea and he said I had cellulites. He also gave me Flonase (which I am already taking) He told me he can give me something stronger-a steroid for my sinuses if needed. I had a cat scan previously and it showed chronic sinusitis and I have been getting rashes on my neck and face and was told it was either rosacea or allergies.
I also have Rosacea which I believe is flaring up because of the allergies. I take Zyrtec year round and again twice a year the Zyrtec does not seem to help. I am curious if I can use another allergy medicine with my Zyrtec to help alleviate the symptoms? Can you recommend something for me?
Good luck in resolving your skin issues. BTW I have similar triggers for my rosacea and the combination of Allegra and Zantac is interesting. If you have any more infor or studies on that two-drug combination, please let me know. -- Jim http://www.okmastocytosis.org/tmep.htm http://dermatology.cdlib.org/103/NYU/case_presentations/102103n1.html http://www.psoriasisguide.com/psus_basics/types/types_of_psoriasis.
i had hives last week for 6 days which i was told was an allergic reaction. they eventually went but now when i go out in the cold my face turns bright red on my cheeks chin and nose and my neck and chin go bright red and blotchy which burns. any ideas as to what it is and what will help?
Currently, I’m on Doryx 150mg, finacea twice daily and zyrtec once a day for the problem, but, like most of the above treatments, nothing good seems to be happening. Any ideas as to what is going on here or what my next step should be? I’ve even had allergy testing done, but the results showed no reactions to anything of significance. I’m at a loss here and don’t know what my next step should be.
Keep on taking the antihistaminics as sometimes they have to be taken for a long time. You can use Benadryl at night as it causes drowsiness and other non sedating antihistaminics like Claritin and Zyrtec . Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms. You may take Vitamin C along with the prescribed treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement. If the symptoms persist, then you can consult an allergist.
Cephalexin (Keflex) 500mg 1 tab 4 times a day for infections; Cetirizine (Zyrtec) 10mg 1 tab a day for a month for allergic reactions; Fluconazole (Diflucan) 100mg 1 tab immediately for Fungal infection; and Prednisone (Deltasone) 20 mg 1 tab a day for 3 days; which he wants me to use only if the others don't work due to the steroid nature. He also recommended Ammonium Lactate (Amlactin) 12% lotion.
My dermatologist was sckeptical of the antibiotic route and also prescribed Finacea, for a Rosacea condition. I am unpleased to anounce that neither the posting above solution neither both of the specific prescriptions helped me. The only response I got was from the oral antibiotic for the first week of the two and that reduced te redness by about 30%. To make matters worse than they are, its been close to a week since I left a message with my dermatolagist and havent heard back.
I have been battling this problem for a few months and am ready to lose my mind. I have small blister-like bumps aon my chin and around my nose, very sensitive. They develope little white heads continuously. The ones on my arms are larger like mosquito bites, these itch like crazy. Sometimes they go down, and then will flare up again. I can't put my finger on the trigger of the flare ups. Benadryl helps a little but not enough. Is this an allergy, a skin infection,rosacea, what?
That is working but then he told me to put Clobetasol on the pink band for 7 days then alcometasone for 2 weeks. So I did and then went off the Clobetasol and onto the alcometasone for 5 days then my legs got lots of very itchy bumps and raised areas from my ankles to the lower calf on one leg and the ankle on the other leg. It looked very bad as I had scratched it that night and it was deep red and then a couple days later very swollen (edema).
by the way most of dermatologist, prescrives oral antibiotics, and creams, that don´t work for anyone... search on rosacea foruns, what helps rosaceans.

Dear Starfire, Sorry there are no clear & easy answers I know of for post-nasal drip. Post-nasal drip can be caused by many different things--do you have allergies? It can be caused by allergies. It can also be caused by a viral or bacterial infection. When the mucous is yellow, it may be an infection. In any case, I would suggest discussing it with your doctor, particularly if it occurs frequently and often leads to bronchitis.
I went and saw a different dr., and he put her on prednisolone 1 teaspoon a day for 7 days, and then just dropped her down to 3/4 a day. she is also taking zyrtec, 1/2 teaspoon a day. plus i am putting cutivate on her skin twice a day.. well the ezcema is all gone, and she looks wonderful. just like you said, no matter how ugly it gets, it will not scar. and you were right.what i want to know is, when she is finally off the steroid, will it come back??
Hello, For your symptoms, blepharitis and blepharospasm should be ruled out. Benign essential blepharospasm is not considered life-threatening, and occurs due to dry eyes or eye irritations. Blepharitis is caused by inflammation of the eyelids due to malfunctions of the oil glands near the base of the eyelids. Another possibility which should be ruled out is of seborrheic dermatitis. Please consult an eye specialist and get these possibilities ruled out.
Then my legs cleared up and I had to go off the Zyrtec for 2 days to go see an allergist and my stomach and back broke out. I just went the other day to have 15 tubes of blood taken. The allergist could not do skin testing since when he simply scratched my skin it welted up. When I drink alcohol it really ticks off my hives so I feel for you Chinu becaue I love my wine. Pino Grigio to be exact and for those of you who don't know....
) I have had seasonal allergies for about 8 yrs ( itchy eyes, runny nose) nothing a few zyrtec couldnt control. I do get an itchy throat if i eat the skin of apples, pears, or plumbs. I should probably be going to the Doctors as much as possible. But i cannot take off any more time from work. And finding Doctors that are available when i am has proven difficult. So now I ask on this Forum for some help, advice, opinion, anything.

HI, Just wondering, I've seemed to have a horrible allergic reaction to either Neutrogena face wash OR Rosasol (perscription for Rosacea). So bad in fact that I needed to go to the emergency room yesterday morning. My skin, from my chin to my eye brows is burning, red, itchy and my face has swelled like crazy, especially around my eyes. So, my question is this... I was just RX Rosasol last week, used it all last week with no problems.
This is gonna sound crazy but I havn't had very itchy legs since I took my son for swim lessons last Friday and was in the pool for an hour. My rosacea looks better too! I am still using the olive oil on my legs and face cheeks and am now taking 3,800 IU of vitamin D. I ddin't see a huge improvement until after soaking in an indoor pool for an hour. Must be the chlorine. My scalp has been better I am only using the Selson blue or head and shoulders on the weekend.
I have had hives for almost three years now. Every antihistimine and stomach pill (that has a histimine blocker) has been tried. The only relief I have gotten was when I went on Cyclosporine for six moths. This is an antirejection drug. I do not want to stay on this, but have been off of it for five months now, and hives are starting to return. Sometimes they are red splotches on my skin, other times they are thick welts, both itch unreal. My eyes, lips and feet swell also.
But I could go out today if I had to. I plan on taking the Zyrtec for the next month and also I will keep applying the Elidel (which burns the heck out my lids) two times a day. I also am going to pick up the Nizoral shampoo which I read about in other forums and give that a go. I am BOUND to find a quick and simple cure to this terrible ailment!!
and he looked through this microscope divice and found small white sores so he did a biopsy and he said I had Eczema. He prescribed a cream that I have to use twice a day for a month and I have to take one Zyrtec a day. The cream is called Clobetasol 0.05% its generic for Temovate 0.05%. I've been using it for a week now and it really really works.
For the past 6 months or so I have a recurring lump on my face which presents itself exactly like a mosquito bite about 3 cm below my eye. It is in exactly the same place everytime, red, raised and very itchy. The surrounidnng area is quite pink as well. It sometimes happens on a weekly basis, other times with several weeks in between. In the beginning it would come and go very quickly, within the day but lately it is taking 2-3 days to go although the itching subsides quicker.
Also prescribed Doxycycline(capsules). These both are for fighting bacteria. Have worked for me thus far. Itching has stoped since taking the meds.Legs and feet have subsided, with a little itching here and there. But I am also still on the meds. Hope this will help. It mite be a form of bacteria that some of you are dealing with. Rather than an alergic reaction to water as I was told by one dematologist.
My husband has been having skin rashes around his eyes, raised small red bumps, for several months and just won
Just wondering if anyone has a 'miracle cure'!! For a few years now, I've been getting a red blotchy chest/neck rash in circumstances where I - am drinking alcohol, anxious, nervous, excited, upset - really feeling just about any emotion. It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement.
Apologiies in advance for this crazily long post- perhaps if I had forced my pharmacist to read all of this, he might have actually been helpful..... For the last few weeks I have been suffering from incredibly sensitive eyes/eyelids which are red, dry and sore, similar to sunburn. I initially thought it was because of some cheap make-up remover wipes that I used to take off my mascara.
